Overcoming Laziness: Finding Joy in Practice
The biggest obstacle to meditation (or any practice, really) is the laziness of "just not feeling like". How do we identify this laziness and how can we replace it with a deep joy in practice? Ven. Rita leads us in exploration, discussion and meditation on this troublemaker, and gain some simple skills to use at home.

Dharma practice, laziness, joy, effort, perserverance, mental states, Buddhism, Tibetan Buddhism, psychology

Subject: One of the most useful teachings I've heard!
Of course I've listened to many, many hours of Dharma, and when I found this selection, it was directly after a hard time with surgery and I was not feeling well emotionally. This transmission by Ven. Rita literally helped me transform my mind from being depressed into the realization, literally, that I have the potential to become a Buddha. I can't explain it, but it was one of those things which happens when you hear the right thing. I highly recommend this teaching, given by an honest, down to earth Buddhist, who puts the Dharma into wonderfully understandable terms.
